    Short history- I've got two players for playing ONLY .ISO content......99.9% BD - . ISO I have a Dune Smart D-1, and a Netgear 550. I've been perplexed by the ability of the Dune to display superb cover art/sub-folders/movie titles but at the same time been dumbfounded at the Dune players...

    Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce a program I created to build a music jukebox for Dune-HD devices. It’s been around for few months and went through a couple of release iterations already. People tested it successfully on databases of ~20000 titles. It is called Dune Music Manager (DMM)...

    Does any of the current streamers have the ability to sort movie collection by genre? I have close to 1500 BD rips(mkv/1080p) on my network and currently organize them alphabetically. Would love to be able to sort by genre(comedy, si-fi, etc). My current setup is wdtv live via NFS to...

    I'm looking for a media streamer that will play 24/96 5.1 and 24/192 FLAC files without downsampling them. I'd like the box to also play mkv and other file types, but the primary use would be for 5.1 FLAC. I have a WDTV Live Plus, WDTV Live Streaming and Roku 2 XS, but none of those fits the...

    Is there any modern affordable alternative to the NTV550? Most importantly the ability to play back with menus DVDs and Blu-Rays stored on a NAS in a folder layout (not ISO). I don't really see any good options today, but was wondering if its just me missing it.

    I've read in a 2010 review of the Netgear NTV550 that it could not play either audio channel of an .mkv file featuring two or more language-specific audio tracks. Is that still the case?

    I've been using it for almost a year and its worked flawlessly for streaming BD iso's. That's all all I need, but lately I've been having to unplug and replug along with other annoying fixes. I'd like something that works a little better overall. any suggestions?

    Ok, here I go. I'm a total newbee at this so I'm hoping for detailed answers not just you need to get this or that. I would need to know how to configure all whatever I need step by step. I'm thinking others would benefit from this also. I'm trying to stream Flac files to my Yamaha Aventage...

    Hello all. I am having problems getting a good network speed as measured by test on ntv550 from my NAS, a synology ds212j. I had it ds hardwired to router, a linksys e4200, which was hardwired to the ntv550. I was only getting 12-15mbps when tested on the ntv550. I was getting 40mbps at the...

    Hi all, I am looking to buy a Hardware Media Player to play my HD collection. Here are the requirements: 1. It should support 3TB NTFS formatted USB 3.0 external hard drives (All my MKV 1080p videos are in two of those Seagate Goflex 3 TB drives) ? My research showed that many players like...

    I have a rare opportunity to get a gift for my mom which she actually almost sort of specifically requested (not really). It also, happily, gives me a chance to ditch the PS3 she's been using to play the videos I dig up for her, because that thing is just a nightmare of unexpected...
